Throughout the first half of the 2013 season, I conducted dozens of interviews with Phillies minor leaguers for a concept segment on Comcast's Phillies Nation TV. Those interviews were never used on the program and I've been chasing the powers that be to put those segments together as web content for the better part of six months, since the minor league season ended. While a majority of that footage and the potential for it to see the light of day are out of my hands, I did come across some of the digital files and put together this 90 second clip of Phillies RHP prospect Ethan Martin answering some fun questions.
Martin, who was acquired in 2012 from the Dodgers for Shane Victorino, posted an 11-5 record along with a 4.12 ERA and a .229 batting average against in 21 starts for Triple-A Lehigh Valley last season. He also made 15 appearances (eight starts) with the big league Phillies, sporting a 2-5 record with a 6.08 ERA and a .261 batting average against.
The 24-year-old Georgia native was the Dodgers' 1st round draft choice in 2008.
Check out the media player below to see this never-before-released interview with Ethan, who stands a great chance at being a considerable contributor for the Phillies this year.
